We have one large drawer that occassionaly causes grief. On inspection there is a "prong" on the slider that engages with the hole in the drawer. the damage occuring when improperly engaged. the other drawers do not show any damage at all.
What is best way to deal with this issue? Hard body filler? Glueing a washer inplace did not work as it displaced the location at front of drawer.

I'd go for body filler ... Find a drill bit of the right size to fit in the hole, with some cling film around it, then you can fill right up to the hole edge without blocking it and get the drill out afterwards.

Check that the slider isn't distorted so it goes back in clean.

You could use two pack epoxy based wood filler same principle. I'd probably stick a thin bit of metal under the dodgy bit to reinforce it
